Grout Colorant w/ 511 Sealer

Have 2 x 2 hexagonal carrara floor tile with WHITE grout....well it was white 6years ago. The grout is Customs Sanded Grout and has Miracle Sealant 511 penetrating sealer on it.

QUESTION 1: Can I paint a grout colorant (like the one by Customs) on the grout even though it has been sealed?

QUESTION 2: Is there a way to get the 511 out of the grout?

I'd guess the sealant is long worn off by now. A water test would be fairly easy.

Custom has a toll free number to get specific instructions as their products have changed over time. Let us know if you get an answer from them.

For when DIY isn't such a good idea...

If you suspect the grout is free of a sealer, bypass using a stripper and just use the pre treat cleaner that coincides with the colorants.
